One Dies in Gali Shooting
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 1 Jun.'10 / 13:34

One Abkhaz customs officer was killed and two others wounded when their car came under fire in the Gali district of breakaway region on Tuesday morning, Abkhaz news agency, Apsnipress, reported.

Chief of the breakaway region’s customs office, Said Tarkil, said the car of customs officers was attacked when it was approaching duty station post in the village of Saberio.

“It was a subversive act carried out by the Georgian special services,” Apsnipress reported quoting Tarkil.

Georgian officials from the Abkhaz government-in-exile, however, claimed that the shootout occurred between the Russian servicemen and Abkhaz customs officers.
